I wasn’t expecting to love the movie Coco as much as I did. I mean, I assumed it would be good and entertaining but I wasn’t prepared for the story to be as good as it was or to be as emotionally moved as I was. The kids and I walked out of theater loving the movie and knowing that we would need to add it to our collection once it was available. Thankfully, it is now available and I am happy to say that we now own our very own copy.
